Commitment: 
1 Week
Skills: 
Willingness to learn, teach, share, discover and experience
Type: 
Organic Farming. Milk buffaloes, pick pineapples, help design a new project, or just load the biogas chamber with dung. We welcome guests to participate at all levels. In return, you?ll learn about integrating animal husbandry with crops, growing food in forest farms, organic pest control, and the crops appropriate to various seasons in this semi-tropical region. Food Processing. Growing food is only part of the job. Next comes all the work that gets that food to the table. In Nepal, that work is often done by women, but in our home, men are encouraged to join in too. Churn butter, grind turmeric and specialty flours, prepare spicy chutneys, and learn how to make homestyle Nepali dal bhat. Teaching English. The Parajuli family helped develop a community-run school. English is an essential part of the curriculum and native English speakers are needed to teach and help the children with conversation. In return, you can enjoy the smiles and laughter of the children. Community projects. For those with the initiative, there are opportunities to get involved with various community groups. For instance, a local women?s group wishes to set up a library. Udaya and family wish to build a network to encourage other farmers in the area to move to organic farming. if interested, ask Udaya and Sadhana about the possibilities at any particular time. Microcredit. For anyone with interest in developing local systems for micro-credit, there would probably be interest in the wider community for connecting local entrepeneurs up with lenders such as Kiva.
